- "Still one of the finest and beyond a doubt the coolest soundtrack to one of the best British films of all time
- Roy Budd's theme from Get Carter is truly kick ass...from the bad ass bass riff to the tablas to the keyboards.
- The three keyboard instruments are a grand piano (with lots of reverb and very little direct sound), an acoustic harpsichord with reverb added and a red Wurlitzer EP-200 electric piano. I remember reading that the film's budget only extended to three musicians; Budd, a percussionist and a bass player. I thought I could hear an analogue drum machine at one point (Ace Tone?) but perhaps not."
